O goody! A rant link. I think all forums should have a board just for people to let off steam. Call it, "Pet Peeves", Rants and Raves" or "O! I Could Just Spit!!!" It will allow people to assist and empathize with each other just as in the other boards.
I have been cut off by Verizon's screening computer several times this year, because all agents were busy. Yet when I immediately redialed and give the same information, I would then be told I am second or first person in queue!
Kudos to the person who suggested requesting an "Agent" after giving the computer your telephone. It has saved me from blowing many gaskets.
I know there must be a reason why you have not contacted your bank and put a stop to these unauthorized withdrawals.
Perhaps you may get assistance from dslreports's forum found Here. If they cannot assist you to your satisfaction, perhaps you should search for a neighborhood organization/political office that can. I did.
Dont waste your time calling tech support or even going to store. No one cares. If they did, they would be able to look up the last time you called or came in and keep some continuity.
Obviously the Verizon people have NOTHING whatsoever to do but waste your time and (0f course) collect your money.
When we had Alltel, we had occasional problems too, But they got fixed promptly and the people I spoke with KNEW why I was calling
they KNEW who I was.
Now you have to provide so much ID that I am beginning to think they are selling the info
By the way, just a note to the person who wants to cancel autopay.
They is NO WAY to do it.
The ONLY sure way to get it done is to go to the bank and have them change your account number
Been there,, Done that.
Changing your accr number works every time and you might be surprised to find that the BANK will be on your side!
I have been a triple play customer since October 2008. I extended my one year contract 4 months early to lock in the rate for two years and upgraded my internet speed. I recently had a TIVO installed and a 7216 removed. The installation and subsequent billing was great. The partial month charges and credits, in both cases, were calculated perfectly.
The 7216 box does not function as intended and does not work well with my new Sony televisions. Thus, I think the equipment is a **bleep** but the service behind it, including calls to the FIOS number, have been handled in a satisfactory manner and the people who helped me were excellent. All in all, I am pleased with the customer service at Verizon.
If I thought Verizon was bad, I would not be hanging around waiting for the incompetence of Frontier Communication to arrive. I realize there are some total losers at Verizon but there are many more winners and I guess I have just been one of the forutnate customers.
